THE HANDHELD OTDR... REINVENTED.The MAX-700B series is the first tablet-inspired OTDR line that is handy, lightweight and rugged enough for any outside plant environment. With a 7-inch, outdoor-enhanced touchscreen–the most efficient handheld display in the industry–it delivers an unprecedented user experience. Its intuitive Windows-like GUI ensures a fast learning curve. Plus, its new and improved OTDR2.0 environment offers icon-based functions, instant boot-up, automatic macrobend finders as well as improved auto and real-time modes.
The Max-700B series is a line of genuine high-performance OTDRs from the world’s leading manufacturer. It delivers EXFO’s tried and true OTDR quality and accuracy along with the best optical performance for right-first-time results, every time.
The amazing 12-hour battery life will never let a technician down, and the plug-and-play hardware options, like the VFL, power meter and USB tools, make every technician’s job easier.
Most importantly, the Max-700B series is finally bringing the iOLM, an intelligent OTDR-based application, to the handheld market. This advanced software turns even the most complex trace analysis into a simple, one-touch task.
Ultimately, the Max-700B series is small enough to fit in your hand and big enough to fit all your needs!
THE ENTRY-LEVEL SOLUTION DESIGNED FOR ALL YOUR TESTING NEEDSThe MAX-730B OTDR/iOLM is optimized to test through optical splitters up to 1x128, ensuring complete end-to-end FTTH characterization. The 1625-nm, out-of-band, live testing port enables the efficient troubleshooting of active networks without affecting the signal of other clients.

Other models available :
› MAX-715B Short Access and FTTx Last-Mile installation and troubleshooting (30 dB)
› MAX-720B Access for any short network construction (36 dB)
REMOVING THE COMPLEXITY FROM THE OTDR
Using a unique and patented automated multipulse and multi-wavelength acquisition approach, the field-proven iOLM surpasses the traditional OTDR and linear view for expert-level link characterization of any fiber network.
This dynamic OTDR-based application uses EXFO’s most advanced algorithms to deliver detailed information and maximum resolution on every element of the link. Thanks to its unmatched intelligence and simplicity, the iOLM converts complex OTDR tests into clear and accurate go/no-go results, through a single button operation.
› Hardware optimized and intelligent software for maximum performance
› Multiple acquisitions, multiple wavelengths with one button—all automated
› Expert-level characterization results in a single, comprehensive report
› The fastest and hassle-free way to perform full fi ber characterization
› No training required: self-setting device with clear go/no-go results
› Minimized truck rolls, thanks to the smartest analysis, powered by Link-Aware™ technology

OPTICAL PLUG AND PLAY OPTIONS: The MaxTester features plug-and-play optical options that can be purchased whenever you need them, at the time of your order or later on. In either case, installation is a snap you can do it by your own, without any software update required.
OPTICAL POWER METERA high-level power meter (GeX) that can measure up to +27 dBm, the highest in the industry. This is essential for HFC networks or high-power signals. If used with an auto-lambda/auto-switching compatible light source, the power meter automatically syncs on the same wavelength avoiding any risk of mismatched measurement.
› Extensive range of connectors
› Auto-Lambda and Auto-Switching
› Offers measurement storage and reporting
› Seven standard calibrated wavelengths
VISUAL FAULT LOCATOR (VFL)The plug-and-play VFL easily identifies breaks, bends, faulty connectors and splices, in addition to other causes of signal loss. This basic, yet essential troubleshooting tool, should be part of every field technician’s toolbox. Visually locating faults by creating a bright-red glow at the exact location of the fault on singlemode or multimode fibers, it can detect faults over distances of up to 5 km. (Available with the Optical Power Meter only)
AUTOMATED AND INTELLIGENT FIBER INSPECTION PROBENeglecting to clean, inspect and certify connectors will lead to serious, time-consuming problems that account for up to 80% of network failures. Thanks to years of field experience, EXFO has been able to re-engineer a major, patent-pending, fiber-inspection probe, the FIP-400B, which is designed to both simplify and speed up this critical step of network construction.
When paired with ConnectorMax2, the FIP-400B can objectively analyze connector cleanliness based on IEC, IPC and user-defined standards. Plus, the auto-centering feature cuts inspection time in half, especially in patch panels and hard-to-reach connectors. This inspection tool, which is exclusive to EXFO, is equipped with a pass/fail LED indicator that provides a clear diagnosis in the palm of your hand.

To maximize the performance of your OTDR, EXFO recommends using APC connectors. These connectors generate lower reflectance, which is a critical parameter that affects performance, particularly in dead zones. APC connectors provide better performance than UPC connectors, thereby improving testing efficiency.
For best results, APC connectors are mandatory with the iOLM application.
Note: UPC connectors are also available. Simply replace EA-XX by EI-XX in the ordering part number. Additional connectors available are the EI-EUI-76 (UPC/HMS-10/AG) and EI-EUI-90 (UPC/ST).
